Did you know? About David Wright

On July 21, 2004, the New York Mets called up a young thirdbasemen by the name of David Wright (Chesapeake) from Triple-A Norfolk, his hometown team. Wright had the thrill of playing for his hometown Norfolk Tides, but realized his ultimate dream of playing in The Show. While he went 0-4 in his debut, a 5-4 Mets win over Montreal, his career has taken off with the Mets.

Wright has virtually re-written the Mets franchise record books, becoming the all-time leader in just about every major offensive category, and with the retirements in recent years of Derek Jeter and Todd Helton, Wright is the only active major leaguer playing for the team whom he is the all-time hits leader for.

Did you know? David Wright is 16th among active major leaguers in base hits.
